Slime is a super fun and easy craft to make with the kids, to hop on the slime making train we have a recipe for pastel slime.
Elmer’s pastel slime
What you’ll need
- 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution
- 4 fl oz ‘Elmer’ White School Glue x 3
- Food colouring Yellow, Pink and Blue
- Foam Beads
Pour the 3 bottles of a 4oz Elmers School Glue into 3 bowls.
Add 1/4 tablespoon of baking soda into each bowl and mix thoroughly.
After mixing, add your food colouring to each bowl until you get the colour you want.
Add 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution.
Mix until mixtures get harder to mix and slime begins to form.
Take the slime out and begin kneading with both of your hands. Repeat for each colour. If needed, add 1/4 tablespoon contact lens solution to make the slime less sticky.
To combine hold each slime up high and let it stretch out. Once all 3 are long enough, intertwine each one to create a mixed rainbow slime!
Add in foam beads and mix through with your hands.
Thanks to Spotlight for this recipe.
